Our group develops devices in the areas of bio-mechatronics and autonomous vehicles.

In the bio-mechatronics area, the objective is to assist the human motion during rehabilitation and to help geriatric people with wearable robotics. In the case of autonomous vehicles (AV’s), we focus on the assistance during natural disasters by using teams of heterogeneous robots (air and ground AV’s) that interact simultaneously.


National Laboratory on Robotics with the specialized areas:
- Laboratory for Micro-Robotics
- Laboratory for Autonomous Vehicles.

This Laboratory is supported by CONACyT and the Tecnológico de Monterrey.
